Have you ever wondered how to tell if a website is trustworthy? Can you decide if a website is safe to use? An SSL Certificate notifies you of just that.
SSL Certificates are small data files that digitally bind a cryptographic key to an organization’s details… In simple terms, this certificate helps to protect sensitive information such as credit card details, usernames and passwords. It assures your viewers that the website they are dealing with is legitimate and their information is safe and secure on your site.
Once a certificate is installed on a web server, it activates a padlock or green bar and the ‘https’ protocol.
Advantages of SSL Certificates
An SSL Certificate gives your customers confidence in your website. The green padlock provides trust and security, assuring users transactions and all sensitive information is secure.

Get an SSL Certificate
To see whether a website is safe to visit, you can check for security information about the site. When a website applies HTTPS, the website’s server uses a certificate to prove the website’s identity to browsers. The ability to recognise a secure web connection is extremely important. Therefore, having an active SSL Certificate on your website should be a main priority, especially for websites that store private information.
An SSL Certificate needs to be issued from a trusted Certificate Authority. Get your site authenticated to vouch your domain’s trustworthiness. The Capture Factory can offer you the opportunity to gain an SSL Certificate. Talk to one of our team to find out more about SSL Certificates.
